3D Series Views

  • 2 minutes to read

In addition to a large variety of 2D chart types (also called view types), the WinForms Chart Control gives you the ability to publish your data in an attractive and high-fidelity 3D-like style. To do this, just choose any of the available 3D chart types, and provide data of the appropriate type to the ChartControl - and that's all! In addition, the smart rotation feature enables you to adjust the 3D position of your chart via the mouse pointer, both at design time and runtime.

The topics listed in this section describe the 3D chart types available in the WinForms Chart Control, along with short descriptions on how to use them. The following 3D chart types are available:
